I’d like to express the importance of each moment through the world of a mysterious Japanese calligraphy.
It is taboo to trace the same line again in Japanese calligraphy. It is same as your life. You can never return your past. As tools and materials of Japanese calligraphy are made from natural things, your lines are influenced by a lot of things; temperature, air humidity, water, your mental condition, skill and so on. Your work is a result of association of various things. That is the reason why you can never make the same work again. My theme of works is focusing on “just now”. No one can meet this moment twice, all things are in flux and nothing is permanent.
[My Work]
I’d like to hand down Japanese calligraphy culture next generation.
Through Japanese calligraphy, I’d like to make dreams of many people come true.
[My Dream]
My dream is activation of the Japanese calligraphy culture.
“Washi”, Japanese papers, was registered with the UNESCO,
but there are few people knowing how “Washi” has been used in Japan.
I’d like to introduce the Japanese calligraphy that is the traditional art using “Washi” to  people thorough the world.
I’d like to to enjoy Japanese calligraphy with people thorough the world.
